Warrington). «Diana Malivani possesses an inspirationally innovative approach through which she brings together various artforms and presents her limitless imagination and creativity. Her thirst for new approaches incites an enlightening visual and cerebral experience that leaves the spectator roused by her energy but free to explore the boundless meanders of colour, gesture and rhythm» (C. Rosewood). The International Confederation of Art Critics in London awarded Diana’s artwork at London Art Biennale 2019 and published a book on her artistic oeuvre under the name «Diana Malivani.
